Team Preview: Prosser Mustangs

Posted: Updated:
PROSSER, Wash. - Last year will long be remembered by Prosser Mustang fans.  The team won their fourth state title since 1992 and their fist since 1999. That has put unbelievably high expectations on this season. "We're like the Yankees," said Coach Tom Moore. "When you're the Yankees, a lot of people like you and a lot of people don't like you."
Tom Moore has coached at Prosser for 21 years. His older son Kellen graduated two years ago, and now is the first ever freshman starting quarterback at Boise State. Moore's younger son Kirby enters his senior year at Prosser with four scholarship offers, one from Washington and one from WSU.
"He's a real good player," said Tom Moore. "He's fast, he's strong, he has good ball skills. He has got great tools. He's got speed. He catches the ball well."
Kirby says being coached by his dad is something he's used to. "I don't think it was too big of an issue having my Dad be the coach," said Kirby. "He's coached here for a long time. To me he is just one of the coaches."
Even with this being Kirby's senior year,  Tom Moore says he is not done Coaching at Prosser.
"I'm not ready to retire and sit down in my rocker chair," he said.
Prosser opens at Redmond this Friday night.
